Puerto Rico beats upstart Netherlands 5-0 in WBC

Alex Rios hit an RBI triple and Puerto Rico beat the Netherlands 5-0 to finish undefeated in the first round of the World Baseball Classic on Wednesday.
Next up, an enticing matchup with the United States.
Carlos Beltran, Ivan Rodriguez and Geovany Soto each drove in a run for Puerto Rico, which won Group D and will face the U.S. in their second-round opener in Miami on Saturday.
The U.S. was the runner-up in Group C, won by Venezuela.
It was the second win for Puerto Rico over a scrappy Dutch squad, which earlier eliminated the star-laden Dominican Republic with a pair of stunning upsets. The Netherlands was also headed to the second round in Miami, where it will play Venezuela on Saturday.
